New Atlanta Heights Charter School Celebrates Grand Opening Monday Sept. 13th
Events, Schools

Atlanta, GA-- After opening its doors to welcome approximately 400 K-8 students for the first day of school on August 23rd, Atlanta’s newest charter school, Atlanta Heights Charter School, will officially celebrate its opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring students, parents, school officials and local dignitaries. Festivities will include a special presentation by students and a tour of the brand-new 44,260-square-foot school building.

According to the Atlanta Heighst website, their credo is to, "set high-standards, make expectations clear, provide meaningful instruction, and watch children excel academically. At Atlanta Heights every student is given the tools for success, in and out of the classroom. With a commitment to work, good citizenship, and personal responsibility students experience a safe, secure environment where learning and achievement can thrive.

A quality K-8 education sets the critical foundation for a student’s success in high school, college, and beyond. Achievement may look different for each individual, but our goal is to prepare every student to pursue a college opportunity. It is with this goal in mind that Atlanta Heights’ curriculum is designed to meet state standards and equip students with the specific skills and knowledge they need to master in each content area at each grade level.

Atlanta Heights believes that great schools should aim to develop both a student’s heart and mind. To that end, we have implemented a moral focus curriculum that builds on the virtues of prudence, justice, temperance, and fortitude, while incorporating these virtues into moral, performance, and social character lessons. Through these lessons, students learn to build and maintain strong personal character while developing the qualities necessary to help them to achieve academic success and become good citizens."

The school invites students, parents, school board members, and special guests to celebrate the opening of Atlanta's newest public charter school.
